Charles F. Lummis : a brief biography, after 1928.

Biography of Charles Fletcher Lummis (1859-1928), prominent journalist, poet, photographer, and activist of the American west and founder of the Southwest Museum. The biography begins with Lummis' childhood in Massachusetts, where he was rigorously educated by his father following his mother's early death. It then traces his attendance of Harvard, his 1885 transcontinental walk from Cincinnati to Los Angeles (as recorded in Lummis' book A tramp across the continent, 1891), his work as city editor of the Los Angeles Times, his 1886 coverage of General George Crook's participation in the Apache Wars, Lummis' paralysis and temporary blindness, his life with the Pueblo Indians in New Mexico, and his founding of the Southwest Museum. References are also made to Lummis' relationships with his first wife Dr. Dorothea Rhodes, Theodore Roosevelt and Boies Penrose at Harvard, Harrison Gray Otis, Leonard Wood, Adolph F. Bandelier, Henry Herbert Knibbs, and members of his "Lion's Den" literary circle. Carbon copy of typewritten manuscript with handwritten notes.
